Police have released several pictures of a man who posed as a customer before robbing a Rock Hill bank Tuesday afternoon, police said.
Authorities had not made an arrest today in that robbery that happened at Provident Community Bank at 615 Crown Point Circle off Dave Lyle Boulevard, said Lt. Larry Vaughan of the Rock Hill Police Department.
“We need the community’s help,” Vaughan said. “Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect should call the police.”
Anyone who sees the man is not encouraged to confront him. Instead, call authorities, Vaughan said.
No one was hurt during the robbery that happened around 4 p.m. Tuesday.
"He came in and talked about an account at a customer service desk," Vaughan said of the man.
Then the man gave the bank manager a black vinyl-type bag with a drawstring and ordered her to put money inside the bag, according to a press released issued today.
"He told one of the tellers (that) he had a gun," he said.
No customers were in the bank during the robbery; however, four employees were present, Vaughan said.
The man left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, Vaughan said.
Officials believe the man walked toward Target after he fled the bank, Vaughan said. He is described as a black man whose age ranges from late teens to early 20s. Witnesses told police the man was about 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighed around 180 pounds, and wore blue jeans and a gray hooded sweat shirt, Vaughan said.
Anyone with information about the robbery should call the Rock Hill Police Department at 329-7254 or 329-7296 or CrimeStoppers of York County at 1-877-409-4321.
